An Average Treehouse, Still Great Fun,
23 February 2017 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Treehouse of Horror XXVII is a great Simpsons episode with some very well written segments and a ton of very funny scenes. It begins with a strong opening, commenting on how they have now struck their landmark 600th episode, featuring some characters who have had a big effect on the series. The closing number at the end of the show was also fantastic, parodying Goldfinger and poking fun of the many Fox series that were canceled after one season.

The first two segments were very average, end of the road, Treehouse of Horror episodes. The Hunger Games one was fun, but spent too much time poking fun at the film series rather than trying to tell a story. Followed by that, the imaginary friend one was a bit humourless, definitely the weakest of the three, consisting of us merely watching characters get killed for five minutes.

The highlight of the night for me was the final segment, a funny James Bond parody that does succeed in telling a story rather than focusing too much on poking fun at the many 007 films. Seeing Moe as a secret agent and Homer as the ruthless villain was really fresh, unlike anything the show has done previously.

As far as Treehouse of Horrors go, it falls somewhere in the middle, not the worst, but certainly not the best. Very enjoyable, Treehouse of Horror XXVII is a forgettable Halloween special, but fun while it lasts.

Lisa is forced to fight to the death against other Springfield children, an imaginary friend causes chaos across Springfield and Bart joins Moe on a secret mission.
